I'd like to offer some advice for azael and conerdical.

I understand you guys want as little dead air time as possible but I feel like the amount of air time you dedicate to "ddos" is really hurting your broadcast.

A few key points

-  It makes you look unprofessional and incompetent.  I don't care if it is or isn't an ACTUAL dos attack on someone that is causing them to d/c, but constantly refering to it just makes it look like you guys don't know what you're doing and are at the mercy of some 15 year old script kiddies.  Stop that.

- IF it is actually a person or persons DOSing crysalid etc, DO NOT GIVE THEM RECOGNITION BY CONSTANTLY TALKING ABOUT IT ON STREAM.  Especially conrad, cannot help himself constantly trying to poke fun at these "people" while they're accomplishing what they want.  Azael said it once yesterday "Stop talking about it, that's what they want." and yet you guys continue to do it.  Just stop!  If it is irrelevant to you and you don't mention it on stream, THEY GET NO RECOGNITION AND IT BECOMES BORING TO THEM.  STOP GIVING THEM CREDIT.

- Finally I'll have to input this even though it's futile.  You guys sound like toll noobs calling it DDOS.  It's a dos attack, and the phrase is "I'm getting dos'd, or I'm dosing this noob" etc.  Always has been.  I don't know who made the term DEEE DAWZ popular (suspect Zilea) but ffs I hate it that the term has caught on on wow.

- Why are you apologizing every 10 seconds on stream?  Once here and there is OK but you do it too much.  It makes the audience feel as though you OWE them something.  You don't.  You're providing a free service.  Stop being sorry about things beyond your control.  A polite "Thanks for bearing with us while we experience technical difficulties" is professional and all you need to say.


stop talking about deeee dawz and be professional on stream!

Other than that, thanks for the stream, the actual commentating on the match itself is pretty good.

Not really sure what you expect us to say at this point, every match is a d/c due to DOS basically.  If there's a small issue here and there like there has been in other tournaments I 100% agree that it's pointless to mention but are we really expected to just say "Oh hey look another d/c!!!" 15 times in a row, and just spam restart the games, or even worse pretend they were legit and count them?

We have no content to provide because every team is just getting constantly disconnected so there's literally zero we can do about delays.  It's a sad state of affairs but there's literally nothing we can do on our end, it's totally up to the individuals to stop themselves from getting DOSed, and all it takes is one person making a mistake, or intentionally leaking Skype names to ruin a tournament completely even with all the proper preparation.  I put a ton of time into organizing the tournament, making sure everyone understood all the precautions they would have to take in order to avoid DOS attacks just because I wanted to run a professional / smooth tournament for the community.

I can tell you I'm making zero money from running this tournament even with all the time I put in, because I wanted to give something back to the community and hopefully create a successful tournament series that could go onward into MoP.  Unfortunately it's impossible to justify putting in the time, and getting prize money from sponsors etc if this is how the community will react to a tournament (even if it's just a handful of people).  The Twitch chat is also very disappointing, simply because we're being blamed for something completely out of our control and players are being bashed on for "fake" d/c'ing as their net connections constantly go down, etc.

The community as a whole needs to grow up.

You'd probably have a little more luck finding resto druids if the tournament was at least hosted on live realms.

Yep, probably.

The TR is much easier to run a tournament on though, PvP trinkets work for the spectator client - everyone has equal gear and can setup whatever races / specs / gear that they want which is very nice and imo makes for a much better tournament.

We just got the scoop on another exciting World of Warcraft 3v3 Arena Tournament coming up: the Raid Call World of Warcraft Invitational.

I miss the old SK-Gaming ranking were you could search for comps after what talent spec they were instead of classes.

#3736131 Anyone giving up WoW for GW2?

#3736069 Anyone giving up WoW for GW2?

Posted Tuxer on 29 July 2012 - 03:12 AM

Unfortunately I don't see GW2's future looking to bright. If you honestly believe an MMO made by a company other than Blizzard will ever do much to challenge WoW you need to look back at the other "WoW killers" we've seen... Age of Conan, Aion, Warhammer, Rift, SWTOR, the list goes on. No other MMO will have an e sports scene either, I promise you. I've tried the majority of the new MMOs that were supposed to be the "New top MMO" and they are never fun in the end game. Honestly until Blizzard kills WoW itself by making a new MMO then nothing will compare. Am I happy with WoW's current state? PvP especially? No. It's an 8 year old game that we've all been playing for a while now, of course we're going to get sick of it. But sadly it' the best we've got.

Such a sad and pathetic way to "troll" (cant even call it that) because when someone says their life/safety is in danger, you have to assume it is true because it would be a grave error to bet someones life/safety on it being a prank and have it turn out to not be a prank (therefore it requires no skill at all to sell the "troll").

Great job to this bathwater scum for proving he is just a sad pathetic attention seeking nerd.  Even more sad that he has deluded himself into believing this prank is something to be proud of.
